Barba-Petros is an overrated Greek traditional tavern. We didn't have the tastiest meals as it was advertised! It is an atmospheric tavern though, with kind owners. Worth a visit!

We were in Areopoli in early March and ate here two nights because it was the only place we could find open. The first night we were given a friendly welcome; the second might we were old friends. The pork with plum sauce, the lamb with pasta and the beef stew were particularly good. The place reminded me strongly of... More

The place is old fashioned, warm and clean. Barba Pierros was friendly and polite. Delicious traditional local dishes and wine. Decent prices. A nice place in a very beautiful town!

This place has tasty food and large portions for a very good price! They serve traditional local dishes and wine. The outdoors lively siting option also counts for some extra points. Highly recommended.

We sat out front, instead of the terrace, which looks nice but we wanted the action of the streets for dinner service. The servers were excellent, asking questions and suggesting items due to freshness on the menu. If you get a chance, it's worth a stop.

A wonderful greek restaurant warmly disguissed as an unassuming old fashioned tavern, which by the way dates back to the 1920's. The menu is traditional but offers complexity amd range not often found at the average greek taverna. Try the piglet with plum sauce and the simple yet delicious baked eggplants and potatoes as well as the rooster or the... More

In our visit in this beautiful city of Greece we visited the traditional tavern of barba Petros in Main Street of Areopolis. First the stuff was very friendly and experienced. They advised us to choose local food , so we tasted local beef and pork cooked as they use to do in this area since many years ago. The salad... More

Been there lots of times, the last one being in July 2016. This is a classic greek tavern but the quality is above classic! The place has a picturesque yard and a terrace. Both are beautiful. Food is fresh and very tasty while on the cheap scale. The owners are very helpful and kind, they went out if their way... More

Had a fantastic lunch here. One of the best Greek meals we have had. The owner showed us into her kitchen to show us the specials of the day. All freshly cooked & delicious. I highly recommend this charming restaurant full of character & ambiance.

As vegetarians, we can comment only on the vegetarian dishes. The place ticks most boxes of what you would expect from a tavern, and offers tasty, if unspectacular food. Allegedly the oldest restaurant in Aeropolis, perhaps it gives its best with fish and meat dishes. The bill for two came in at 40 euros with about six dishes, on par... More
